Blake Ferguson, contracts, Parramatta Eels, players leaving, squad


Parramatta has confirmed the exit of veteran winger Blake Ferguson, as the 31-year-old’s football future remains up in the air.

Ferguson was one of four players officially farewelled by the club on Wednesday. The others are Joey Lussick, Michael Oldfield and Sam Hughes.

Ferguson was the star of the show as the Eels beat Newcastle in the first week of finals, but then they were bundled out by Penrith in week two to mark his last game in the blue and gold.

He is yet to commit to another club and so he will be officially unemployed as of November 1 if he doesn’t land another job in the meantime.

He’s been heavily linked to rugby union, and last week spoke about his options.

“I’m at that point in my career where I’m looking for opportunities. I haven’t made a decision as of yet,” Ferguson told Triple M.

“Rugby is something that I do want to try, I played it as a schoolkid and hopefully one day I can play rugby, but we’ll see what happens.

“It would be good to try and switch codes and try and create a legacy in that arena.”
